We love MUSH and peanut. Big fans. They address isolation issues and provide a friendly face/faces during lonely times. If you haven't already downloaded them, then we strongly advise that you do. We are firm believers that the more resource you can access at the new mum stage, the better. Everyone's experience is different and there certainly isn't a one-size-fits all approach to motherhood.
Research has proved that it takes 4 month and 23 days (on average) to feel like a mother and from experience it's during that time that you have a zillion questions running around your head, you haven't slept in what feels like forever and you are walking around jet lagged and hungover, without the good night before hand.
A Mummy Buddy is more than just a smiley face and a coffee, it's someone who is has agreed to take on the responsibility of helping you through this. Trust me, you'll be grateful for this at the time.
